Friday Night Movie Night – Create Time-lapse Videos From iPhone 3G or 3GS

I will be honest, this is my first Friday Night Movie Night. Normally Doug does Friday Night Movie Night but since he is in Africa… I thought I would give it a shot. These are some cool videos I found that were created using an app called ReelMoments.

ReelMoments, by Nexvio Inc., is an application that allows you to create time-lapse videos right from your iPhone 3G or 3GS. The videos below were captured with ReelMoments and edited with ReelDirector (also by Nexvio Inc.).


App Store Description:

ReelMoments lets you take time-lapse video directly with either iPhone 3G or 3GS. Capture the moments of your life and create VIDEO clips on the fly!

Video is not a privilege of iPhone 3GS users any more!

Ever wonder how filmmakers capture the blooming of flowers? Clouds fleeting over the sky? Or people flooding the subway station and exiting it in rapid motions? Now you can create videos just like that using your iPhone camera!

✔ Set timer and interval.
✔ Optionally ZOOM in on the subject.
✔ Tap Start and shoot your own time-lapse films!
✔ Share your videos by email or save them to Camera Roll.
✔ Battery level is monitored and displayed; recording will be stopped and video saved when battery is low.

What is time-lapse?

Time-lapse is a professional technique to capture photos at a slow interval and play them back as normal speed video. The otherwise slow changing moments are condensed into a dramatic scene, which often contains fantastic visual feasts revealing unusual events otherwise slipping by unnoticed.

– To save battery usage, reduce the brightness setting during shooting.
– An iPhone stand, holder or mount is always helpful.

  2. MaverickC17 says

    Does the App ReelMoments add the music also?

  3. I think the newest version of iTimeLapse app is waaay better than this… It looks better and it has a lot more options.

    • I forgot… In iTimelapse you can even export video in your camera roll (even on 1st generation iphones)
